Sustainability report for 2015 ready

Elkem's sustainability report for 2015 is now available on our website.

Responsible business conduct

Successful business depends on confidence and a good reputation. Elkem requires its employees and representatives to promote our values towards colleagues, business associates and society at large.

Vision and values

Elkem’s mission is to contribute to a sustainable future by providing advanced silicon and carbon solutions, creating value for our stakeholders globally. We believe that safe and eco-efficient production is the only way forward and that together we can develop solutions to many of the world’s challenges.

The future of Elkem is carbon-neutral

Elkem is among the world's cleanest metal manufacturers but still releases around 1.3 million tonnes of carbon emissions each year. This may now be coming to an end. According to the plan a research project will conclude with full scale production without net carbon emissions and without net supply of energy.
